76ers near deal to send Jahlil Okafor to Brooklyn

Report | 76ers to trade Jahlil Okafor to Nets Nets land Jahlil Okafor in stunning trade with 76ers
Rita Gibson | 08 Декабря, 2017, 00:22

Jahlil Okafor's days of suffering on the pine in Philadelphia have finally come to an end.

The Brooklyn Nets will release guard Sean Kilpatrick, reports The Vertical's Shams Charania.

According to ESPN's Zach Lowe, the Philadelphia 76ers have agreed with the Brooklyn Nets on a deal that would send the third-year center to NY for Trevor Booker.

The Boston Celtics were nearly always mentioned in rumored deals for Okafor (then again, which rumors weren't they mentioned in the last few years?), and in a way, Thursday's trade will likely make Boston fans smile just a little bit.

Players of a similar ilk, like Greg Monroe and Al Jefferson, have recently made an impact coming off the bench to give second units some scoring punch.

Okafor played just two games for the Sixers this season. "I've done everything they've asked of me and I would just like to get an opportunity to play with a trade or a buyout".

Okafor, the third overall pick of the 2015 draft, was expected to be a linchpin of the Sixers' rebuilding process, but he has been grasping for minutes due to the strong play of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Robert Covington.

Booker, a seven-year veteran out of Clemson, is averaging 10.1 points and 6.6 rebounds in 18 games.

A first-team All-NBA Rookie team member following the 2015-16 season, Okafor averaged 17.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 30 minutes a night in 53 games during his rookie season.
